Peter Zeil - On To New Horizons

Peter Zeil, Senior Project Manager at Z_GIS, has retired by the end of last month. Mr Zeil, who held a position at Z_GIS for more than 18 years, has fostered remote sensing applications for natural resource management, humanitarian action, and disaster risk reduction. Recently, Peter Zeil topped his career in a 2-years secondment at the Copernicus unit at EC’s DG GROW, in charge of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service.

At our last plenary meeting, Dr Stefan Lang lauded Mr Zeil’s achievements for the team and the entire community, highlighting – amongst others – his ever forward-looking efforts in building capacity and collaborating with African partners. Mr Zeil, while formally retiring from his engagement at the University of Salzburg, will nonetheless stay fully active in the community. His legacy he will carry on by switching to the private sector, where he joined the Z_GIS spin-off Spatial Services GmbH.
